Events include a Cher-a-thon performance of Cher impersonators, including two males who sing, talk, and look like Cher complete with gaudy dresses and high heels.
Other celebrity impersonators in the show will include Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin, and of course Chers former babe the late Sonny Bono.
Other events will include a Cher Karaoke Contest, where anyone can sing their heart out to Cher songs. Event coordinator Kim Werdman confirms that If I Could Turn Back Time is the most popular Cher song for this event.
There will also be a poetry reading featuring poems written about Cher, a museum of memorabilia and an auction of goodies devoted to the entertainer.
Although Cher wont be there in person, Werdman says shes donated signed CDs and other tour artifacts for the auction along with holograms and clothes shes actually worn.
The Cher Convention will donate all proceeds to the Childrens Craniofacial Association/ Cher Charity Foundation.
